Arbitrary killings, curbs on press; India has several human rights issues, says US report

A US human rights report has said that India has several human rights issues, including unlawful and arbitrary killings; restrictions on freedom of expression and the press; restrictions on political participation; and widespread corruption at all levels in the government.

A US human rights report has said that India has several human rights issues, including unlawful and arbitrary killings; restrictions on freedom of expression and the press, including violence, threats of violence, or unjustified arrests or prosecutions against journalists; restrictions on political participation; widespread corruption at all levels in the government; tolerance of violations of religious freedom; and crimes involving violence and discrimination targeting members of minority groups, including women based on religious affiliation or social status.

In its ‘2020 Country Reports on Human Rights Practices’ report, the US Department of State asserted that societal violence based on religion and caste and by religiously associated groups continued to be a serious concern. “Muslims and lower-caste Dalit groups continued to be the most vulnerable,” according to the report.

It mentioned restrictions on the freedom of expression and the press, including violence, threats of violence, or unjustified arrests or prosecutions against journalists.
